Warsaw’s cafe nostalgia

I am currently working on a short story partly set in inter-war Warsaw, and found this beautiful compilation of images while doing research.

The music is a slow foxtrot performed by the famous Henryk Gold Orchestra that played in Warsaw’s most well-known nightclubs during the 1930s.

One of Gold’s biggest hits was titled Tęsknota, which is Polish for nostalgia, or longing. Fitting, don’t you think?

    What a wonderful collection of images. My grandchildren are half Polish, and I spend a lot of time in Warsaw visiting them. I’m hungry for anything about the history of their country. These images are full of a retrospective sadness. How soon the world they represent will be gone. Thank you for compiling such a selection and making it available like this.
